Tammy Abraham has insisted Chelsea must use the 'anger' they're feeling as a result of their 1-0 Champions League defeat to Valencia as motivation for their crunch clash with Liverpool on Sunday.
Frank Lampard's side looked like rescuing a draw from their group stage opener, only to see Ross Barkley miss a late penalty that would have cancelled out Rodrigo's second-half strike for the visitors.
There is no time for Chelsea to rest on their laurels, however, as a mouth-watering encounter with Liverpool is on the horizon with the Blues playing host to the Premier League leaders at Stamford Bridge. To set themselves up for the Reds, Abraham has issued a rallying call to his side, stating the residual anger that lingers from the Valencia defeat must be transferred into their performance at the weekend.
"It's still early doors [in the Champions League]. We're fuming we lost," he said, via Liverpool Echo.
"But there's still five games to go - we just have to win our next five.

"I have to give it [my personal form] to the manager and players," he added.
